The benefits of portable toilet hire for sports events

portable toilets for sports events

If you are hosting a sporting event at some point in the near future, you are probably well aware of the long list of things that you need to consider.

Not only do you need to get the competitors there and provide them with everything that they need, but you will also hopefully be expecting a large crowd to come and cheer them on, and you will need to cater for them too.

You have probably considered tickets, staff, and refreshments, but is there one more factor that you need to think about?

There is nothing worse than attending an event and deciding to nip to the toilet at half time only to discover that everyone else had the same idea and the queue will mean you miss most of the event. That is why hiring portable toilets for your sporting event can be a life saver for both you and the crowd.

Benefits of portable toilets

Guest Comfort

If you want your spectators to return for another event, then you need to ensure that they are comfortable and happy at all times. There are many ways to achieve this, and one of them is to make sure that there are adequate toilet facilities on site.

This can be particularly useful if you are hosting an event at a site that does not normally see quite as many visitors and is therefore not set up for the numbers that you are expecting. Hiring extra portable toilets can mean that queue times are slashed, and everyone gets to enjoy their day without any inconvenience.

Even Distribution

If your event is spread across a large area, then portable toilets can play another important role. When hiring toilets, you do not need to keep them all in the same place, and so by spreading them out, you can make sure they are available for everyone who needs them without a long walk.


Another issue that can be encountered at some venues is accessibility. You can now hire portable toilet facilities that are fully accessible for the disabled, and some even come with baby changing stations to ensure that your youngest visitors and your oldest are all taken care of. This can be great when it comes to promoting your event as being family friendly, as you can truly state that you have taken everyone into account.

Toilet hire considerations

When hiring portable toilet facilities, there are a few things that you need to think about. You should carefully consider where the toilets are going to be located, as it will need to be a flat piece of land that the toilet can sit comfortably on. You also need to ensure that there is sufficient access to the site by the company delivering your toilets, as they will need to be able to drive to the spots where you would like the toilets to be situated. It would also be ideal to ensure that you have a suitable number of toilets on your site before the event begins, as it can be hard to source portable toilets for the same day. Luckily, if this is the case for your event, we can offer emergency toilet hire, so no matter when you require toilet hire services, we can get them to your site on the same day of your enquiry.

You might have thought about convenient locations for your toilets, but for hygiene reasons, you need to make sure that this is nowhere near any food or drink stalls and keep them a slight distance away from the action too.

If the British weather decides to let you down, you need to make sure that the path to the toilets is still accessible and that people are not slipping and sliding on mud or ice, or that pram and wheelchair wheels are not becoming bogged down.

Portable toilets might not be one of the first things that you think about when planning a sporting event but they are one of the most essential, as they can ensure your event is a hit, no matter what the results are.
